Hey guys, I added WVNS 59 on October 1st the day after it was launched on directv. I don't watch many shows other than football on this chanel. The Steelers play every sunday on this channel that I do watch. I noticed last sunday that the HD picture was 100% junk. It had verticle purple lines on dark objects and white lines on lighter colored objects. Also, I still have the CBS HD station out of NYC. Compared side by side WVNS HD looks a little better than 480i and not even 720p. The NYC CBS station looks like a true 1080i picture. I contacted DirecTV and WVNS about this problem. They claim they do not have a problem on their end. I have noticed this problem on family member's tvs also. It is not as bad on lower resolution TVs 1080 x 720 but my tv is a 1080P Philips tv and it is like going back to the non digital cable system I learned to hate. I have read at least one post with this same problem. Can anyone confirm this problem and if so can we work together to hound DirecTV untill they correct the problem. Maybe then I can watch my Steelers in HD and not some pure junk that has a HD logo beside it.
